    Directions

    1. Salad: Combine Spring greens, pears and herbs (if desired) in a large salad bowl. Top with cooled sugared walnuts.
    2. Right before serving, toss salad with desired amount of dressing. Add Gorgonzola crumbles at the very last, tossing lightly to incorporate into the salad.
    3. Sugared Walnuts: In a small pan, saute walnuts and sugar over medium heat until almonds are caramelized, stirring often (they will be light brown and coated with melted sugar), approximately 4-6 minutes. Spread the walnuts on foil or wax paper. After they cool, break apart.
    4. For the dressing: Combine ingredients in a jar or container with a lid and shake well. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss.
